On Friday 2nd September, a selection of Year 10 students participated in a program called, "The Personal Effectiveness Workshop," run by Marion Osmond. This exciting workshop went for the full school day and it was jam packed with many helpful and insightful activities. In the morning we started off with something called DISC which helps us understand ourselves and others. It divides people into four sections based on our priorities in life, like whether we are more person or task oriented. Already an hour or so in, we all had a better understanding of DISC. Then we went into detail about "7 Tools for Effective Mindsets and Behaviour.” Within these tools we explored positive mindsets and positive opportunities; we also looked into responsibility and resilience. Then came my personal favourite part of the day - pizza for lunch! After a good feed we all came together for one last discussion about mindsets and roadblocks. I’m sure I can speak on behalf of the Year 10’s that got to participate by saying that we benefited greatly from the experience and were grateful to Marion for coming out and giving us her time.
